Create Your Own Book Winners – 2011

Every year, during National Library Week we ask children to create their own books in any genre that appeals to them. Once again, our Create Your Own Book contest produced so many wonderful books that it was nearly impossible to select a few for top honors.

We hope everyone had as much fun creating their books as we did reading them. Congratulations to our winners and all our talented Newark students who participated.
